This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
updated on 07/24/2015
The attorney received an Interim suspension for default on a child support order. This means the attorney lost his or her license to practice during a disciplinary investigation. The suspension typically expires when the investigation is resolved.
Charles' comment:“3-week suspension not related to handling a client matter. Suspension lifted upon payment.”
